Wrap it up

Flower Gift Card by Lauren Fowler

Christmas is almost upon us! We're assuming you've finished your Christmas shopping (you've finished your Christmas shopping, right?), and are onto the wrapping stage.

This week we featured a selection of wrapping goodies in Pretty Cool, our weekly all-pictures newsletter. There's a new theme every week, and this week we showcased 13 things from the site along that theme.

Fill in your details here to get in on that action!

Special Star

Catch a falling star and put it not in your pocket, but on a very lucky finger. This beautiful ring from HelenSilverSmit is upcycled by hand from a vintage 1925 silver coffee spoon. Given the nature of upcycled items, it's obviously one of a kind, so we'd suggest you snap it up here before someone else does!

We featured this item in our newsletter this week, along with a curated collection of our favourite items with a star motif. There's a new theme every week, so if you'd like to be kept in the loop, sign up below!

Happy Halloween!

Halloween's not just about pumpkins and candy, y'all - it's celebrated in various forms around the world, and has a rich and fascinating history. The Mexican tradition of Dia de los Muertos is only tangentially related to what we know as Halloween, although it happens at the same time. There's no candy here except eye candy - the traditional "sugar skull" designs have recently seen a surge in popularity, and they make a really striking element when used in unexpected places, like this gorgeous cushion from Jeez Louise.

Chantilly Lace

Lace isn't just for your granny's handkerchiefs anymore. We're seeing it pop up everywhere from details on clothing to contrast laser-cuts on leather. One of our personal favourites is this beautiful earthenware bowl with a lace patterned glaze. Get yours from Sandy Godwin Clay Creations here.

Get on your bike!

Old or new, vintage bicycle or shiny new chopper, there's just something special about getting where you're going on two wheels instead of four. Bring some pedal power to your couch as well with this cute cushion cover from Handmade by Me, available here.

Cream of the crop

There's nothing like finding that one pair of shoes that's stylish, comfortable, and goes with everything. This nude pair from Vosk is set to become a staple in our summer wardrobe - and, with every pair purchased, they donate a pair to a child in need. You can pick up your new favourite shoes here.

Festival fashion

Summer is a-comin' - and with it a whole host of outdoor activities, including one of SA's favourites: Music festivals and outdoor parties. These beauties are one-of-a-kind and have been customised by hand. We think they're super cute and festival-ready - throw on some shades and you're good to go! You can get them from Chook Clothing here.

Suikerbossie, ek wil jou hê

Heritage Day is around the corner! Our national flower is a personal favourite of mine, for its diversity and ability to grow in adverse conditions. These gorgeous magnets are hand cut and hand painted, and will give your fridge the touch of national pride it needs while it keeps the 24th's braai meat chilled. Get yours from Met Liefde here.
